"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
Cheese grits along with the beer baked ham are the dishes that Christmas Eve brunch is and Easter brunch were built around. If you want to do something a little different add a bit of cooked ground sausage, small boiled shrimp, or sliced mushrooms. Make them ahead and even freeze for a week or so and move them to the fridge to thaw the night before you plan to serve. Love, M
NOTE FROM NENE! This is MY grits recipe! I started using it in the early 1960's for our New Year's Eve Brunch. It was always a favorite. Just wanted you to know that your Mom got the recipe from me. Nene
